RELATIONAL MEDIATION 

EVENT SUMMARY 
Relational Mediation is two-day, intensive course providing the skills for practitioners working with individuals at the beginning of the mediation process. The workshop, through the use of actors, will provide a strong practical focus on the subtle and delicate skills required to bring about a series of transformative shifts in parents, helping them to gain a broader perspective on why they are in conflict, what effect this has had on their children and how they might manage their parental alliance in the future. 

Speaker - Bill Hewlett 

Bill has worked for 17 years as a child consultant and a mediator and managed and supervised the clinical practice of mediators across six Family Relationship Centres and was the lead trainer for the Australian Institute for Relationships Studies in Sydney, Australia. This work has led Bill to develop an innovative and effective model of practice, which responds to the current challenges of the family law system when working with parents who struggle to come to amicable arrangements with each other. 
 
Bill has published articles on family dispute resolution and is frequently invited to present at conferences and events locally and internationally.
